    (Shafer One Point Five Cabernet Sauvignon) COLOR-a gorgeous purple inky color, pitch dark; NOSE-big red fruit (kirsch & cassis); enormous intensity; a little mint play; just gorgeous; really ripe cherry; fruit bomby, yet conservative; PALATE-very silky; enormous silk on the back-end; seductive; silky smooth; polished finish; almost like drinking delicious pure purple paint; refined elegance; has that really bright, intense California fruit; a Napa cab really doing it's thing; this is a gorgeous conducted Napa Cab; really polished elegance; big fruit; explosive; I really want to grill a big fat steak and eat it with this wine; this wine is bringing massive New World thunder; you can taste the gorgeous Oak integration; this is California Cabernet at it's best; drinking tremendously now, but will easily age 7-15 years; I like the subtle black leaf tea on the back-end; just a beautiful and elegant bottle of Cabernet; I like this '04 much better than the '05 that I just rated 88 points; WS-93; GV-93
